Not Heard From.
. A GREAT SHOW
Glen Curtiss, Charles K. Hamilton
and C. F. v Willard, aviators, may be
substituted or M. Louis Paulhan, as
the attraction for the El Paso aviation
Nothing has yet been heard from
Paulhan or from Edwin Cleary, man
ager of the French aviator. Cleary was
to have wired to the El Paso pro
moters of the aviation meeting upon
his arriving in New Orleans Sunday.
The men who are boosting the local
aivation meeting are calling on the sub
scribers to the fund for bringing the
flying men here with the counter propo
sition of contracting for the appear
ance of Curtiss. Hamilton and Willard
for an aviation meeting some time this
month. K. L. Bernard, manager for
Curtiss in his1 present tour of the south

Reiss, the showman and amusement
promoter in the promotion of aviation

ager of the Phoenix meeting on Feb
ruary 10, 11 and 12. He is here to con
fer with" Mr. Bernard and also with the
local promoters of the aviation meet
ing. To Bring Flock of Flyers.
The offer of these two men, who con
trol the appearance of Curtiss, Hamil
ton and Willard is that they will give
a meeting under the auspices of the
Aero club of America, giving one mile
and ten mile races with two machines,
trial tests, quick starts, and slow starts
against time; stopping the aeroplanes
within a given square, two. passenger
flights and other exhibitions with the
heavier than air machines.
For this program, which has been
mapped out by Mr. Barnard since he
came to El Paso, the two contracting
managers ask $12,000 for the three
days' meeting. This is asked for in the
form of a guarantee the same as Paul
han's manager asked, but instead of one
mail making brief exhibition flights
as tPaulhan has been doing at New Or
leans this week, staying In the air a
short time and keeping the audience
sitting in suspense while he flies off
across the fields and out of sight of the
Curtiss's managers say they will have
two and three men in the air 'at the
same time, doing figure eights, circling
above and around each other and giv
ing a high class exhibition of the most
modern and the most thrilling amuse
ment the world has known.
At Phoenix, where Curtiss and his as
sociates are to appear under the aus
pices of the Phoenix Aero club, th2
three aviation days have been declared
half holidays over the territory by gov
ernor Sloan, an excursion train will bo
run from Los Angeles for the meeting
and other excursions will be arranged
for from all points In Arizona, In Los
Angeles, the Phoenix meeting is being
as widely advertised as the Los Angeles
meeting was. In the Hollenback hotel

the Phoenix dates for the aviation meet
ing and Inviting the returning tourists
to go home by the way of Phoenix.

fore coming to El Paso, Mr. Bernard

and Dr. Hyde took a capsule out of the
box. "I believe it was a three grain cap
sule," the nurse continued, "and I don't
remember whether it was gray or white.
I do remember It was not brownish. Col.
Swope would not take the capsule then
but later he assented," she declared.
"Suddenly a peculiar breathing sound
from the bed caused me to look up. CoL
Swope's face had changed. His eyes
were set and wild and the pupils dilated.
I called to him but he could not an

Dr. Hyde. When he came upstalns, he
was in his shirt sfeeves and almost as

said: 4It is apoplexy, brought on "by the
death of Col. Hunton.'"
Miss Kellar said she gave Col. Swope
three hyperdermlc injections of strj-ch-nioe.
Once after a convulsion Col. Swope
appeared to revive and cried: "Ohl my
God, I wish I had not taken that medi

died toward evening.

Bad feeling has been brewing for some days between white and aegre em

From a single scaffold George
Reynolds and John Williams, negroes,
county jail here at P:30 this morning.
The crime for which they were exe
cuted was criminal assault on a wo
man, this marking the first time the
death penalty has been assessed in
Missouri for this crime.
Reynolds collapsed a few hours be
fore the execution and ha'd to be car
ried to the trap in a chair. Officers
lifted him up and adjusted the noose
about his neck.
"God knows I never committed the
awful crime with which I am charged,"
was his constant wail.
Williams, who has been known for
years as a desperate character, re-
mained brave to the last. Even stand
ing oh the scaffold he forced a smile.
W. H.. Jackson, husband of the wo
man upon whom the assault was com
mitted, witnessed the hanging.
The crime for which Williams and
Reynolds were hanged was committed
on the night of Dec. 23, 1909. Mrs.
Jackson, who is an expert violinist,
was returning home from a concert
when the negroes attacked her,
dragged her to a secluded spot, and
assaulted her in a terrible manner.
Judge Labau in sentencing the
wretches, said he would not desecrate
Friday, the day upon which hangings
usually take place, by ordering their
execution that day.
